About Us
After over thirty years in banking, accounting/tax and corporate finance,  Keith Johnson, President of CBCS, had a strong desire to return to Erie. This is what pushed him to join Checks and Balances Computer Services, which was started over twenty years ago by David Krauza. Keith had a desire to help new and existing business owners follow their dreams and continue the legacy established by David.
